I was afraid I’d hear that. Perhaps, until virtual mode actually hits the streets, Xceed support could compile a list of techniques and sample code to describe different optimization techniques? There has been a lot of discussion about it here on the forums obviously, but it’s generally a pretty complex issue. Partly because it’s not always obvious how to optimize the grid itself, but also because databinding is in itself a pretty complex issue.
Take for instance the paging technique, where only a subset of the datasource is actually loaded into a dataset, but the dataset reports a count of so and so many records. This could potentially solve a lot of issues due to the fact that only a small dataset is used, hence less memory is consumed. But the implementation details are a tad daunting.
A tutorial would be delightful to say the least.
